Louisiana-born soprano Brittany Olivia Logan returns to the Met for her second year in the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program. During the 2022–23 season, she will make her company debut as the Priestess in Aida and sing Clotilde in Norma. She made her European debut last summer at Welsh National Opera in the premiere of Will Todd’s Migrations, where she sang the roles of Bridget and Emelda.
During the 2021–22 season, she covered Strawberry Woman in the Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess at the Met and performed in the premiere of Rashaad Newsome’s interdisciplinary work Assembly at the Park Avenue Armory. In 2021, he was a Studio Artist at Wolf Trap Opera, where she covered Maguelonne in Viardot’s Cendrillon and Jeanette in Bologne’s L’Amant Anonyme. She also sang in the chorus for both productions, as well as in Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. That same year, she won the Audience Choice Award at Houston Grand Opera’s Eleanor McCollum Competition and was a Grand Finals winner in the Met’s Laffont Competition, where she also received the Judith Raskin Award. She has since received the Sara Tucker Study Grant from the Richard Tucker Foundation and placed fifth in the Giulio Gari International Vocal Competition.
